In reply to DBT distress tolerance and other skills, posted by gardenergirl on October 21, 2005, at 23:23:34

DBT is the hardest thing I have ever done. Almost all the 'therapy' falls upon oneself. The group teaches the skills. The T. reinforces and checks what skills you have used that week. She/he does some routine therapy. The Ts have unbelievable boundaries. You have to be almost dead for a T. to return a phone call. They will return your call if it involves something in therapy that is causing a problem or if you think you are going to harm yourself. Even then it somes takes hrs. for them to call back.

I once called her because I had a very strong S. urge. I got a covering and she committed me involuntarily because she got scared and did not know me. Once I called T. because I was very distraught over one of the worse things that happened to me. She did not return the call. That time I cut my wrist very badly so I took a chunk of ice to slow the bleeding and went to the E.R. (Stitches and commited again). And for your info. I have called her about 9 times in 2 yrs. I do not think that is excessive. Do you?
However the results of learning the discipline skills taught in DBT are paying off. (especially the interpersonal skills). It was shocking to me to find out how poor my skills with other people were. However I do not think this is something we could do here. It would not be such a good idea, and if one of us does S. We would be one board of guilty and depressed people. Demolished. Of course this is just my opinion. Btw, I do get furious with my T. and let her have it. She can take it. terrics
